http://www.amiga.com/press/zine/6-3-00/AW2.6.htm discusses why the new
Amiga operating system won't include memory protection at the system

"We at Amiga feel that memory protection is an overhead that punishes
good code because bad code exists, and this is an attitude that is
becoming increasingly prevalent. Indeed, the classic Amiga lasted for
15 years without any memory protection at all and has been praised as
one of the most stable systems ever created, a credit to both the
system and the developers themselves."
